It was not only Nyborg Castle that received a huge upgrade after the Reformation. Eskebjerg Castle – now Scheelenborg – on Hindsholm also underwent a transformation in the 1550’s. From being a castle in the medieval sense, Eskebjerg was transformed into a four-winged Renaissance castle with a moat around it, which was to symbolically represent the owner’s status. The person behind the transformation is believed to be Franz Brockenhuus, who was sheriff of both Hindsholm (Eskebjerg) and Nyborg Len (Nyborg Castle) from 1542-1562. Franz Brockenhuus was able to make his mark on the transformation of two castles in the same period.
